    Is it just me but is the first pokemon encounter on route 2 always turns out to be pidgey? Every time I start a new file and step foot into the tall grass on route 2 it's always pidgey! I even tested this out be restarting the game 5 times right after another and got the same thing. I wonder why they'd fix something like that

    I think maybe twice out of about 10 times I got something other than pidgey.

    Can someone tell m what moves give Typhlosion the battle animation wear his mane ignites and he roars while flaming his arms? Are there any damaging moves that execute this or is it all the generic "down on all fours" one that looks really odd


    Im thinking Round may do it but I haven't got enough points to test this

    I believe it would be special moves.

    I hope they address the frame rate issues in future games.

    It seems like Pokemon that have a lot of moving parts on them like Hydreigon make the game lag significantly more then others. Just having one of them out in a triple battle caused noticeable slowdown, but it got significantly worse when I threw my second one into the mix.

    I always feel like night is non-exsistant in X&Y. I hope they bring back the system they were using with past Gens.

    I agree. Night feels like early morning. It's so bright even at midnight.

    I thought i was the only one who noticed this. it is quite bothersome especially when past games actually represented nighttime a lot better. I remember DPPt it would get very dark at nighttime and sort of orange right before it. That would make a nice touch for the next installment

    They at least did a pretty nice job, I think, on the 'mega stone search hour'. It just seems to go right back into day, unfortunately, instead of using that transition to their advantage.

    It also lags significantly when i put the 3d on, does this happen to anyone else?

    I'm guessing that's for visibility, since the movement grid isn't as well defined in XY, meaning there's less contrast.

    I've not used the 3D much at all for any game, so I haven't noticed further frame rate drops than usual. But the frame rate thing is definitely annoying, especially against Dana in the Battle Maison. Triple Battle leader with all three legendary birds? Plus me using Zapdos as well? Oh god, the frame rate drop. I don't even want to know what max 3D would do to that.

    It wouldn't do anything, since there's no 3D in any fight with more than two Pokemon on-screen at once.

    Yeah, happened to figure that out right after when I decided to check my own battle video on it. Still, the lag is very significant either way. I mean, not like it's the worst thing ever, but it's hard to ignore the lag that results.

    so this interview with Masuda showed a few neat insights into various odds and ends, but the one that caught my eye was
    Is there any advantage to giving a tip to the camera man, or the story teller? I always offered a good tip, because I didn’t want them to think I was a jerk.

    Thanks for the tips! (laughs)

    I think we'll be announcing what we wanted to do in regards to tips on the Pokémon Global Link or elsewhere soon.
    The phrasing is a little weird, but I think he might be saying that tipping will have some effect onnnn something I guess. It's not referring to the medal you get, at least; that's been available since it released.
    Alternatively he means "what we wanted to do in regards to tips" as talking about a scrapped mechanic, but that'd be a weird thing to announce, much less on PGL

    Well at least we'll finally have one mystery put to rest.

    I can't wait to find out what tipping does. I've been tipping, but haven't noticed any effect.

    If we're getting new Mega evolutions at all over the course of 6th gen, new ones will probably be introduced in new games. They wouldn't make you download DLC to get this or that Pokemon. And considering their thought process for creating Mega evolutions, I doubt they'd choose most of these, they're not cool or popular enough (Game Freak says that they create Mega evolutions based on looks and popularity).

    If pokemon like Manectric or Mawile can be considered for megas (Mawile especially since it also had to deal with its BST issues), I don't see why, say, Victreebel or Ursaring wouldn't.
    Maybe not exceptionally likely (I'm sure highly advertised pokemon, starters and so on have higher priority), but you can't stick with the top tier popular pokemon forever, anyway.

    Though this assumes they don't shift their criteria (I feel I remember an interview where they said they looked at popularity as one of several criteria) in future gens.

    Well yeah, but it's unlikely that that entire list would come to be under the current criteria was what I was saying.

    As far as starters go, I would love to see a Mega for Serperior that made it Grass/Dragon. Krookodile could be an interesting one... Dragonite I too am surprised didn't receive a Mega. Machamp, Arcanine as someone mentioned, Ursaring would be interesting to see a Mega for, the Johto starters I'd love to see get Mega Evolutions (especially Typhlosion and Meganium, but I don't see it happening), Staraptor perhaps could receive a Mega... I would say Kalos should actually get a few Mega's as well, considering that's where Mega Evolution was introduced in the games, but I don't know if there's really any that need or should have one.

    Dragonite would probably launch into ubers for OPness but seriously, if he did, what the stone be called? Dragoniteite? Dragoniite? Dragonitite?
